ATW 2018 pay referendum

5 July 2018

Circular detailing the final pay offer for recommendation to TSSA members and opportunity for you to vote in an online referendum by 20 July 2018.

Final pay offer

We are delighted to report that we had a very positive meeting on Wednesday 4 July which resulted in a full and final offer from the company.

The final offer for you to consider is as follows:

Basic rate RPI increase of 3.3% (taken at May 2018)-effective date 1 July 2018

The negotiations differed from the usual process this year because of the forthcoming franchise change. The discussion focussed purely on the pay increase as ATW is currently unable to negotiate any changes to terms and conditions. We made it clear to the company that we wish to have early talks with Keolis Amey Wales about our members aspirations as soon as possible once they take over the franchise. We also suggested that a KAW representative should be invited to an All Grades meeting so that they could meet the reps and listen to their issues as soon as possible.

TSSA recommendation

In the circumstances we recommend this offer as we believe that it is the best we can achieve. We want to acknowledge that this may fall short of your overall ambitions, but we will continue to develop a meaningful and ongoing relationship with KAW to pursue these.

Only those members who have had a fully processed membership application by close of play on 13 July 2018 and remain in membership will be eligible to vote, anyone not fitting this criteria will be removed from the vote which is why it will be necessary for us to confirm membership through name and post code. This information will be kept confidential and only the general anonymised results shared with Reps and ATW.
